Or more precisely, the one who’d kissed my doppelganger while I was hiding behind the curtain in disbelief.
Sixteen-year-old Gwen lives with her extended – and rather eccentric – family in an exclusive London neighborhood. In spite of her ancestors’ peculiar history, she’s had a relatively normal life so far. The time-traveling gene that runs like a secret thread through the female half of the family is supposed to have skipped over Gwen, so she hasn’t been introduced to “the mysteries,” and can spend her time hanging out with her best friend, Lesly. It comes as an unwelcome surprise when she starts taking sudden, uncontrolled leaps into the past.
She’s totally unprepared for time travel, not to mention all that comes with it: fancy clothes, archaic manners, a mysterious secret society, and Gideon, her time-traveling counterpart. He’s obnoxious, a know-it-all, and possibly the best-looking guy she’s seen in any centrury . . . .
TIME TRAVEL! I WILL REPEAT TIME TRAVEL! How can you go wrong with that? you just can’t. I always be obsess with the concept of time travel, and love how people portray it so different and in Ruby Red you get this unique concept of time travel that i found very interesting and exciting to read. If time travel was possible i would defiantly travel threw time.
I just fell in love with the story of Ruby Red. Gwen grew up thinking she didn’t have the Time Travel Gene. She always thought her cousin was the one with the gene. Gwen always though Time Travel would be awesome, not for her but for Charlotte. She never even had the thought it could possibly be her.
I love Gwen in Ruby Red. She would make me laugh threw out the book even when things took a serious route she would just have so much sass. She is a Goof-ball of a character and i just 100% loved her. Her best friend is this huge nerd that into mystery’s and is like Gwen side kick and has been helping her figure out everything threw the book.
Ruby Red was a really fun read and loved like every minute reading it. The story was packed with mystery and suspense. By the time the book was over i was going ” Nooooooooo ” about 100x. You get left with so much questions that didn’t get answered and i was a nervous wreak over it, But that’s the thing about series. They make you get so wrapped around the book and leave with question and then BAM! the end.
I am definitely adding Kerstin to my top favorite authors, Her story of Red Ruby was amazing and a freaking roller-coaster of emotions. I mean come on! Freaking Time Travel! I read this book fairly fast, i was just zooming threw the pages like a race car. I was obsess with the writing and was hooked from the start. I love how the author didn’t just go on about time travel. You actually get a lot of historical facts and that i really enjoyed.
The book does hint to a love story, but i loved how it does become more then just a love story. How the author portrayed in the book really felt realistic. Gwen likes this guy but knows thee is more important things she needs to-do. And Gwen always has the same thought in her head ” Don’t trust no one “.
Overall: I loved the story and the writing, it was so simple to follow along with. Ruby Red is a Fast read but it was just so fun to read. The story just gets you pumped for more and more. I defiantly will be reading the next book in the series when i get the chance. READ THIS BOOK MY FOLLOW READERS! I love this book and know readers will too.
